My name is William "Bill" Haak.
I served 28 years in the city fire
dept. and served a little over 8 yrs. as fire chief. My time as fire
chief taught me a lot about the workings of the city council. I was
responsible for the fire dept.ís budget which was huge at the time.
I was in charge of 21 firemen at the time of my tenure. I feel I can
bring some fresh and new ideas to the council which I feel is needed
at this troublesome time in our city.
I want to make a change. I also
want the voices of the people to be heard because they are the city.
Now they are not always listened to by the council. I will be the
voice of the people. I will work with (the) mayor and the rest of
the council to be fair to all and not just a select few.
We need to attract new business and
help what we have to stay in business. We canít wait for economic
development to come to us because it wonít. We need to build on the
resources that are available here in LINCOLN. We have gaps in our
city such as goods and services where most people now go outside the
city to spend and buy.

We need to help seniors and people
with disabilities with some of the minor chores such as leaf pickup
so they can stay in their homes and feel useful as a human being.
Citywide cleanup would be a nice thing to get started again.
We must work on getting funds from
state and federal grants. Grants take time and somebody with a
background in writing grants.
We have to look at our streets and
get some type of program in play to fix them now and not wait any
longer. I also want to eliminate what happened this year during the
ice and snow days. It was a shame and black eye on LINCOLN.
